Brown was taken in the first round with the fifth pick by 3 Headed Monsters, the squad led by Rashard Lewis and Jason Williams. Gary Payton serves as the team’s head coach.
Four players – Rashad McCants, Andre Owens, Reggie Evans, and Xavier Silas – went ahead of the No. 1 pick from the 2001 NBA Draft. Apparently, after this happened, Brown told those in attendance at the draft that he was going to go after a pair of NBA legends who passed on him.
